Jeff Baxter Net Worth

About Jeff Baxter

Guitarist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter certainly has had a diverse professional career. The guitarist made his first mainstream appearance on record as a member of the psychadelic pop band Ultimate Spinach. He has played extensively with two of the most popular bands of the 70’s – The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan. Skunk produced albums by Nazareth and others. Jeff has had 17 gold records, eight platinum records, and has been awarded two Grammies. And, in 2001, Baxter garnered a position as a defense analyst and consultant to US Congressmen on military defense.

American guitarist Jeff Baxter has a net worth of $4 million dollars, as of 2021.

Yes… you read that correctly. Although Baxter remains an active working musician, the guitarist has found work as “a defense analyst and a consultant to US Congressmen on Military defense and national security issues, mostly in the area of missile defense.”

When asked (in 2001) whether President Bush has the right to explore the hotly debated missile defense system, the decidedly Republican Baxter stated “it’s a changing world, and a lot of people haven’t caught up to it yet. Somebody has to take the initiative.”

Despite being a rather flamboyant personality, and a terrific guitarist, Jeff Baxter’s online presence is surprisingly small. No web sites dedicated to Skunk… no lengthy online bios, and no mp3 sites.
